Burlington City Election 2007 - Official Results

Okay. So you can see it now. Turn out was one of the lowest in over 20 years. Out of 29,958 registered voters, 5,072 votes were cast. 18.8%! The Annual City Election results, provided by the City Clerk's office, are in a pdf here.

Green racers I was following:

Hillary Weeks received 344 votes out of 355 cast and won the Inspector of Election spot in Ward 3. That's 96.9%. Hillary is the first Green elected in Burlington! She received one vote less than Progressive Tim Ashe, who was running for the City Councilor spot. (He beat Independent Loyal Ploof.)

René Kaczka-Vallière was the candidate for Ward 5 City Councilor and received 131 votes (16.5% of 792 cast). René's Thank-you -

I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who cast their ballot for me and the Green Party. Tonight you made history by voting for three Green candidates in Burlington. The biggest gain was electing Hillary Weeks in Ward 3 for Inspector of Elections. Although uncontested, Weeks 344 votes indicate citizens are ready to vote Green if they are given that choice on a local level. In Ward 5, I received 131 votes. Each and every vote was result of the incredible volunteer and financial support the campaign received. As a campaign, we raised over $1000 and had over 1111 first-time visitors to Amazing! You can now expect great things from the Green Party as we continue to grow in the Green Mountain State.
A total of 754 votes were cast in the Ward 5 Inspector of Election race. Owen Mulligan received 208 votes (27%).
